The Bullion Coin

As a legal tender gold coin with a denomination in ounces of pure gold, the Krugerrand is the only bullion coin that is conceptually worth its weight in gold. Containing 11/12 24 carat gold and 1/12 copper the Krugerrand offers a resilient 22 carat gold investment. Available in four sizes containing exactly 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz or 1/10 oz of pure gold, the Krugerrand offers the kind of accessibility that few other coins do.

The Krugerrand is the World’s Most Traded Bullion Coin

First minted in 1967, the Gold Krugerrand Coin was for many years the only gold bullion coin available in the market. Unlike most gold bullion coins from national mints, Krugerrands, since their first mintage have had no face value or denomination because their value was linked to the daily gold price.

The obverse surface of the Gold Krugerrand Coin bears an effigy of Paul Kruger, the President of the historical South African Republic. Kruger is revered in South African history as the face of the Boer resistance against British rule in the Transvaal. This effigy was struck from the original die used in 1892 for the Kruger half-crown coin. The reverse surface of the coin, designed and engraved by famed South African sculptor Coert Steynberg, bears the image of a prancing springbok, a national symbol
